The cumulative effects of sun exposure, pollutants, and scarring can damage skin, making us look older. We offer several types of chemical peels that provide smoother, clearer skin.
The chemical peels available through our office and can restore a more youthful appearance to wrinkled, unevenly pigmented, sun-damaged, and blotchy skin. Chemical peels performed in conjunction with a facelift or other facial plastic surgery can enhance the results of those surgical procedures; however, a chemical peel is not a solution for deep scars or sagging skin. Laser skin resurfacing or surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasty or facelift, are better suited for those cosmetic concerns.
TYPES OF CHEMICAL PEELS
We recommend several chemical peels based on the specific level of treatment you need or desire.
Light superficial peels utilize a novel approach to chemical peeling with a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids (mandelic acid and malic acid) in combination with phytic acid and commonly used peeling agents (salicylic acid and resorcinol) to maximize skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation. Because these types of chemical peels are the mildest available, they can be repeated on a regular basis to achieve the desired results with as little down time as possible.
Moderate chemical peels treat surface wrinkles, moderate sun damage, and uneven pigment changes. Our peeling agents combined with Retinoic acid provides noticeable improvement with just one peel. These peels require 1-2 days recovery time before patients can resume using makeup.
CHEMICAL PEEL RECOVERY
We provide patients with a complete recovery consultation that outlines how to best take care of their skin after treatment.
